Clinical Therapy Services & Fees:
I typically reserve 60-75 minutes for your initial intake session ($225 per 60-minute session, $275 per 75-minute session) and subsequent therapy sessions are generally 50 minutes ($195) unless longer sessions are required based on presenting issue and modality of treatment.
2-Hour EMDR intensives (for trauma work) are $500.
I accept all major credit cards or cash/checks (if meeting in person). Payment is due in full at time of service. In accordance with Federal requirements regarding the No Surprise Act, please see the full fee structure and Good Faith Estimate for therapy services by clicking here.
I also offer coaching services (through Empowering Mindful Moms) to individuals who are enrolled in or who have completed my Empowered Motherhood course and would like 1:1 support but who do not meet the criteria for a clinical diagnosis or require face-to-face therapy. Coaching services are $200/month with access to unlimited voice messaging communication.
Submitting to Insurance:
I am an out-of-network provider and am not contracted by any insurance panels; however, you may check with your insurance company to determine whether you are eligible for out-of-network reimbursement for therapy services provided by a Licensed Professional Counselor registered by the Virginia Board of Counseling. Upon request, I will provide you with statements of services to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Statements will include dates of service, the service code, and a diagnostic code. If you have questions or concerns about diagnoses, please discuss with me at your session.
To determine your out-of-network benefits, call the customer service / mental health number on the back of your insurance card. Ask what the reimbursement rate is for an out-of-network LPC and for any information you need to know regarding how to submit statements for reimbursement.
I am happy to assist you by providing any information necessary for your insurance company to process your claim. Your insurance company may wish to look me up by my NPI number, which is 1932481140, or by my tax ID, which is EIN 27-5544854.
Some alternatives that may be available to offset your out-of-pocket costs include Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA). Please review your specific program for eligibility. Depending on your tax status, fees paid for mental health services may be tax deducible as an itemized medical expense.
Medicare, Medicade, & Tricare:
I do not participate with Medicare, Medicade, or Tricare and am unable to work with clients who wish to submit statements for reimbursement to one of these plans. If you have Medicare, Medicade, or Tricare, please let me know prior to meeting so we can discuss options and next steps.
Forms & Policies:
Upon scheduling an appointment, I will email you a link to access my policies documents and complete the new client paperwork. If you would like me to communicate with another provider, psychiatrist, doctor, or school counselor for the purpose of collaborative care or obtaining background information, please let me know and I will include a Release of Information form.
